Melon-choly Vodka Cocktail

Courtesy Mike Jones, head bartender, Sable Kitchen & Bar, Chicago

This refreshing drink also works as a nonalcoholic sparkler: add some extra cubes of cantaloupe, and finish with a generous splash of seltzer or soda water.

About the Vodka

Belvedere Vodka is a rye-based spirit from Poland. Its crisp, relatively neutral profile allows bright, clean flavors like cantaloupe and basil to shine.


1½ ounces Belvedere Vodka
4–5 cantaloupe cubes
2 basil leaves, plus 1 for garnish
¾ ounce simple syrup
¾ ounce lime juice


Add all ingredients (except garnish) to cocktail shaker. Muddle cantaloupe and basil gently. Add ice, and shake well. Pass through fine-mesh strainer into coupe. Garnish with remaining basil leaf.
